good list-i'll go super-deep and throw Bobby Jenks of the Barons (White Sox) in there-7 saves so far in AA, former Angels uber-prospect now being groomed as a closer.


Now that is deep. Good work.

Good list...I was going to point Chad Orvella out. He was a college SS. Somehow, Tampa struck gold with him by converting him to the mound.

Rafael Soriano is moving to the rotation, from what I heard. At least, that's what they wanted to do prior to his injury. There were a lot of Santana comparisons. However, if he still struggles with injuries, they may be forced to keep him in the bullpen.

While many people think Aardy will be a future closer in SF, I actually think that Merkin Valdez is the guy who will eventually get the job. ;-D

Capellan will be a starter, not a closer. He has to deep a repertoir to be stuck as a closer anytime soon.
